BJP’s IT Head Amit Malviya Booked for Tweet Against Udaynidhi Stalin

New Delhi: A case has been registered against BJP’s IT cell chief Amit Malviya over a tweet of his against DMK leader and Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin.

In a post on X, Malviya had said that Udhayanidhi’s recent remark on ‘Sanatana Dharma’ was a call for “genocide” of 80 per cent of the population that follows it.

“He (Udhayanidhi) is of the opinion that it (Sanatana Dharma) must be eradicated and not merely opposed. In short, he is calling for genocide of 80% population of Bharat, who follow Sanatan Dharma,” Malviya said in a tweet on September 2.

Based on a complaint by a DMK activist KAV Dhinakaran, an FIR was filed in Tamil Nadu’s Trichy.

Malviya has been booked under sections 153, 153 (A), 504 and 505 (1) (b) sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

“Despite Udhayanidhi Stalin issuing clarification over his remarks on Sanathana Dharma, with political motive, Amit Malviya deliberately distorted the speech made by the minister to incite violence and hatred between two groups and to undermine communal harmony,” the complaint stated.
